Trump to avoid more questions from Mueller

Sarah Sanders issues a scathing response to NYT report of FBI investigation into Trump before Mueller probe

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said the legal team of President Donald Trump has the right to vet any final report from special counsel Robert Mueller.

However, Giuliani hoping to "correct" the report is a legally dubious statement.

Donald Trump's legal team has told special counsel Robert Mueller the United States president will not answer any more questions in the probe of Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

"Of course we have to see [the report] before it goes to Congress".

Giuliani acknowledges that it wouldn't look good for Trump if they administration tries to have parts of Mueller's report redacted from the public, but he also made a point of saying executive privilege must be upheld. "The only way we can assert it is if we see what is in the report".

One of those biggest charges is onto Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison for financial crimes and arranging hush money payments to two women who claimed to have affairs with Trump before the 2016 election.

She comes from a multicultural, multi-religious family and, as a practicing Hindu, was the first Hindu elected to Congress. Gabbard joins a quickly growing field of Democrats eager to take on President Donald Trump for the presidency.

Mr. Giuliani said the special counsel brought up possibly having follow-up questions, but Mr. Trump's lawyers said their client would not answer them.

Mueller is expected to send a confidential report on his findings to the Justice Department at the conclusion of his work. NBC News reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein plans to step down after Mueller completes the investigation and expects that he will be able to leave by March.

During the interview with The Hill, the former New York City mayor made light of Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen's intention to testify in public before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on february 7.

"There is no legal protection of polling data. Campaigns leak polling data all the time".

But even Fox News analysts have agreed that Manafort's reputed sharing of internal campaign data with a Russian intelligence-linked operative was the surest evidence of collusion between the campaign and the Kremlin yet.
